Truly excellent food, very accommodating to our daughter, excellent service. We had the catch of the day, it was tuna, the sauce was incredible. They made my daughter a pasta dish that wasn't on the menu.

Enjoyed our duck with orange sauce dinner. Owners go out of their way to be gracious and make American expats feel comfortable. Good wine and beer selection - margarita not so much.

Owners Nicole and Daniel greeted us warmly and, at our request, regaled us with stories about this lively little restaurant. The service and the food at Arte Café are so good! I had the French Onion Soup, and I spell it out with capital letters because it is so special. A rich broth loaded with carmelized onions, a cap of... More

The crew at Art Cafe are outstanding. Dan, Nicole, Martin, and the whole staff/kitchen just do such a wonderful job of making you feel so welcomed and absolutely spoiled for lack of better words. We have been going there since late 2012 so admittedly this review has been a long time coming. From the sinful croque-monsieur to the filet with... More

We ate here for one of their special events - a small concert - and have had holiday dinners here before. The owners are very hospitable and the food quite well prepared. The art is very interesting and there is no blaring TV, so you can actually carry on a conversation during your meal.

Stopped in for a late lunch not knowing exactly what to find. Lovely place, friendly staff. Food was great. Unusually delicious salad we shared to start -- with grilled eggplant and perfect dressing mixed in with other salad fixings.

Had a very nice burger and salad lunch in the colorful Boquete Art Cafe. We loved the colorful dining room and the beautiful photographs on the walls. Service was prompt and polite, though not overly friendly.

A cozy, friendly atmosphere made dinner at the Art Cafe in Boquete, Panama extra special. From the minute we walked in we were treated like old friends. Our waiter, Kevin was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. The owner went from table to table ensuring everyone was enjoying their meal. I enjoyed the shrimp spaghetti and my husband ordered... More
